ANIMA # 2
Animation, Experimental, video art
Anima # 2 is an experimental animation that shows 6 hand drawn human like figures in a constant row. Their movement, similar to a video dance, is created by the nature of the drawing, both by form and color. The apparent stillness of the figures confronts the viewer, as if the latter is being watched and questioned about its physical condition as an observer.
ŌTA SHŌGO'S THE WATER STATION
United Arab Emirates
Experimental, Feature, Drama, Silent Film
‘The Water Station’ is a film adaptation by playwright, director, and NYU Abu Dhabi professor Abhishek Majumdar of a play by Japanese playwright Ōta Shōgo, written in 1981. It is about our experience of the world and how it is shaped by what we have to leave behind, who we can leave with, and what happens when we meet others in our journeys.
A CHANT FOR THE BEES
Experimental, Short, Art
A Chant for the Bees is a short film about my daily life. It contains a series of ordinary events as well as a visit to the amusement park. Original music is in the form of a Georgian Chant of the names of the 100 largest companies in the world.
ANIMA # 1
This experimental and abstract animation reflects upon the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, following the structure of an hip-hop song and mixing plenty of digital hand-painted techniques. The style alternates between continuity and frame collision.
